About Echeveria 'Lolita' (4 inch)

'Echeveria Lolita' belongs to the family Crassulaceae; its leaves are relatively thin and broad compared to typical succulent plants. The arrangement of its leaves is also relatively loose. A prominent fold in the middle of the leaves with pointed edges, colored in deep pink and purple. A layer of farina can be found on the upper surface of the leaves. It is a relatively drought-tolerant and cold-resistant plant, but it also has specific needs to consider.

How to care for Echeveria 'Lolita' (4 inch)

Sun/Temperature: 'Echeveria Lolita' prefers ample sunlight, but some shading can be provided during hot summers to prevent the leaves from being excessively burnt. 'Echeveria Lolita' thrives in warm climates, with suitable growth temperatures ranging from 60°F to 80°F. While it is cold-resistant, prolonged exposure to low temperatures should be avoided.

Soil/Watering: Using well-draining soil mixtures such as a combination of pumice or perlite with sand helps provide good drainage, preventing water accumulation that could lead to root rot. Regarding watering, 'Echeveria Lolita' prefers to be moderately watered before the soil dries out. Watering once a week is usually sufficient during the growing season (spring to fall). Reduce the watering frequency in winter to avoid over-moistening and subsequent root rot. Also, avoid watering directly onto the leaves to prevent them from rotting.

Pot: 'Echeveria Lolita's root system is relatively developed but has yet to be particularly deep. Therefore, it is better to choose a relatively shallow pot with drainage holes.

Propagation: 'Echeveria Lolita' can be propagated through leaf cuttings or offsets. You can pick healthy intact leaves placed on moist soil, lightly buried on the surface, and kept moist. Roots will soon develop, and new shoots will emerge. Another method is to wait for 'Echeveria Lolita' to produce offsets and then separate these offsets, which is a more straightforward way of propagation.

Fertilization: Diluted succulent-specific fertilizer can be applied monthly during the growing season. However, avoid over-fertilizing to prevent excessive growth and softening of the leaves. Fertilization can be stopped in winter to allow the plant to rest.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.
